Microneedling Q&A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses a device covered in sterile treatment needles to stimulate a healing response in your skin. The treatment is among the most popular non-surgical aesthetic options, largely due to the ability to address multiple concerns at once without extensive downtime. 

Microneedling can improve the appearance of:

  • Enlarged pores
  • Loose skin
  • Wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne scarring
  • Sun damage

This is a great treatment option for men and women who aren’t good candidates for laser therapies. 

How does microneedling work?

Medical Spa NP uses the Collagen P.I.N. (percutaneous induction needling) device for microneedling treatments. The treatment head has 36 thin, sterile needles. 

The system is powered and stamps the treatment head into the deeper layers of your skin as your practitioner moves the handpiece. Each time the needles enter your skin, they create tiny channels. 

Your body perceives those channels as injuries and rushes to heal the damage. New collagen and elastin forms, smoothing and plumping your skin. There is no need for any type of advance preparation other than waiting for the numbing cream to take effect at the beginning of your appointment. 

After the session, you receive a set of serums to apply to your skin in the coming days. You must also take care to avoid sun exposure to protect your skin from further damage. There is no downtime required, and you can begin to use makeup the day after your appointment. 

How long does it take to see results after microneedling? 

It takes time for your body to heal and produce new cells. You should begin to see the results of your treatment in a few weeks, although it can take several months for the full effects to develop.

You may need more than one treatment to achieve optimal results. Your practitioner can estimate how many treatments you need during your initial visit, which you can book by phone today. Medical Spa NP also offers additional anti-aging treatments like chemical peels, laser skin rejuvenation, and medical-grade skin care products that can further improve your appearance.
